my journey in black and white

Letter from Mom and Dad

My Child,

When I get old, I hope you understand and have patience with me

In case I break the plate or spill a soup on the table because I’m loosing my eyesight, I hope you don’t yell at me

Older people are sensitive..always having selfpity when you yell

When my hearings gets worse and I can’t hear what you’re saying,

I hope you don’t call me “Deaf!”

Please repeat what you said or write it down

I’m sorry my Child…I’m getting older

When my knees get weaker, I hope you have the patience to help me get up

Like how I used to help you while you were little,

Learning how to walk

Please bear with me…

When I keep repeating myself like a broken record,

I hope you just keep listening to me

Please don’t make fun of me, or get sick of listening to me

Do you remember when you were little and you wanted a balloon?

You repeated youself over and over until you got what you wanted…

…Please also pardon my smell,

I smell like an old person

Please don’t force me to shower, my body is weak

Old people get sick easily when they’re cold.

I hope I don’t gross you out

Do you remember when you were little ?

I used to chase you around because you didn’t want to shower

I hope you can be patient with me when I’m always cranky

It’s all part of getting old,

You’ll understand when you’re older

And if you have spare time, I hope we can talk

Even for a few minutes

I’m always all by myself all the time, and have no one to talk to

I know you’re busy with work

Even if you’re not interested in my stories,

Please have time for me

Do you remember when you were little ?

I used to listen to your stories about your teddy bear

When the time comes and I get ill and bedridden

I hope you have the patience to take care of me

I’m sorry if I accidentally wet the bed or make a mess

I hope you have the patience to take care of me during the last few moments of my life

I’m not going to last much longer, anyway

When the time of my death comes,

I hope you hold my hand and give me the strength to face death

And don’t worry…

When I finally met our Creator…

I will whisper in His ear to BLESS you

Because you loved your Mom and Dad

Thank you so much for your care

We love you.

with much love,

Mom and Dad
